Having seen them on the Pretzel Logic tour, I can confirm that they had no issues at all playing live.

The contrary in fact.

Ah, well--that may be the appearance; they talked about having serious stage fright, etc., etc. They disliked playing live, etc., at least at this time. But, these were at least 2 "former" members, so who knows if it's true...

Didn't mean to imply they got up and couldn't do it, it was that they didn't esp like too...do you--or others--know anything about the band members? Presumably they talked about this sort of thing at one pt.?

But, I may have gotten "rumors" and "slander" given the context...One, though, literally said "I have to go throw up" before going on regularly, according to my recollection.

Well Will, I don't 'know', but there were plenty of rumours at the time about that particular tour having more than its fair share of bickering, fights and general bust-ups.

Of course, it was after that tour that Jeff Baxter parted company with the band.
